Sept-Oct 2015 Stay
Dan B. from Brownsburg, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in September, 2015 The condo was clean and met our expectations. We really enjoyed the location on the beach. The Master Bdrm fan/light switch was bad, but maintenance never showed up to repair. The Master Kingsized bed was very uncomfortable and needs replaced. Overall a great place to stay. A ton of repeat vacationers stay there which speaks volumes for the condo. Bender Realty made it easy to check in and out and were very helpful. We will most likely use them again.
Marsha G. from Pekin, Illinois recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 My 3 sisters loved our stay at Sandpiper! The weather was great! This was my 2nd time staying at the Sandpiper.
A guest from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 Great location, easy beach access, great amenities
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We are so happy you enjoyed your Gulf Shores vacation. Sandpiper 3B is a lovely condo in a great, family-friendly property. Please call Bender Realty when you are ready to return to the Gulf Coast!
A guest from Jeffersonville, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 Everything was fine except the wifi went out on Thursday on level B. Everyone was upset. For the cost it seems the wifi could be upgraded.
A guest from Bay City, MI does not recommend this property. Stayed for 28 days in February, 2015 Beautiful condo! Good view. Neighbors above AND below us personified the Ugly American... We could have tolerated their daily loud assemblies, but the cigarette smokers made sitting outside unpleasant. When they started flicking ashes down to us, i asked them to use an ashtray. It did not end but somebody DID try to 'key' our car! We hope the long mark can be rubbed out.
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. We truly regret that you had a negative experience with some of your neighbors. We have other properties with private balconies and concrete floors that we would love assisting you in booking. Please give us a call when you are planning your next trip to Gulf Shores.
Ryan H. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2014 It was great as always. Clean room, working appliances, and quiet neighbors. This was my 15th year staying at the Sandpiper.
Lionette M. from Marrero, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in August, 2014 My family and I had a great weekend at the Sandpiper. The property is located on the beach in an area that is not overly populated. The unit was exactly the same as the pictures we saw on the website. The parking was adequate and convenient. The only problem we had was with maintenance. We had a problem with a slow draining bathtub that did not receive prompt attention. Management however showed a prompt response the situation. Despite that one incident, I would recommend staying at the Sandpiper.
Kevin P. from Springfield, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2014 The complex/property was very much the same and as relaxing as our stays 20 plus years ago when our children were young. Our Grandchildren had a great time.
Luke H. from Whitewater, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2014 Great property, location, and experience. Kids loved everything, they were happy, I was happy. Would recommend this property to anyone with a family.
Kim W. from Okawville, IL recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 I was under the impression that it was closer to the Shrimp Festival. We walked back one night and it was a little further than I wanted. I would have liked a room with the full ocean view, but overall it was a great trip.
James C. from Southhaven, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in August, 2013 My family and I traveled to Gulf Shores in August despite the rain it was a very enjoyable time! Our Condo was very well maintained and clean! We will definently be returning to the Sandpiper!
Cheryl G. from Villa HIlls, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Very nice 2BR, 2B condo with only 3 levels. Being able to walk up and down steps versus using an elevator was really nice. Had issue with clogged bathtub and it was fixed right away. Close to many activities, shopping and food. I would recommend staying here.
Mindy H. from Russelville, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in May, 2013 Accommodations are very good. Convenient to the beach. Staff very friendly. Would definitely recommend to a friend. Plan on coming back to stay at sandpiper very soon!
Francoise H. from New Iberia, LA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in May, 2013 Too many people,too much traffic...Too bad washing machine was out of order in condo B2.Should not rent condo where everything is not working properly.Hope to mhave more luck some other time.

A guest from Moorhead, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in May, 2011 The only minor issue we had was that check-in was between 3-5 p.m. but even though we arrived a little before 3, we could not get checked in until almost 4 p.m. because they were not finished cleaning. So, we had to ride around (after already driving about 6 hours to get there!) But overall, the Sandpiper is a great place to stay! I will be back!
Shauna B. from Mayville, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 The Sandpiper is our favorite place to stay in Gulf Shores. We come down almost every year. It's very clean and family friendly. We went out to eat every night. The restaurants are excellent, we didn't find any bad ones. We always have a blast and the weather can't be beat. We'll see you again next year! The Bender people are so nice and friendly and very helpful too. Thank you!
A guest from Traverse City, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2011 We were very impressed with the Sandpiper and plan to return. A couple items to note for repair: top drawer of dishwasher not aligned properly or broken; made it hard to open/close. Also, utensil drawer next to stove off track/broken; also difficult to open/close. Neither hindered our stay, just thought you'd like to know! Thx!
Property Manager Response: Response from Bender Realty, Inc. Thank you for letting us know! We can take care of those two items.
William C. from Flint, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 31 days in January, 2011 we enjoyed the weather this year , especially the recent warm weather . we golfed and walked the trails . our unit was very clean . the wifi was erritic at times
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in September, 2010 Thanks for turning on the heater to the pool when requested. Only major fallback..Water pressure for baths and showers was one of the worst I've seen in a hotel/condo
A guest from Lohman, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2010 We almost cancelled our vacation due to the oil situation. Boy, are we glad we didn't! The beach conditions were more than acceptable. There was some oil residue on the beach but not enough to curb our fun in the sun and water. Everybody who cancelled really missed out on a great vacation! Sandpiper is the best!!!!
Elizabeth S. from Fenton, Mo. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in August, 2009 My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Sandpiper 3B. It was everything we needed and will definitely be back.
Anthony S. from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2008 Bender staff especially helpful particularly Donna Workman who helped with reservations. Check-in staff also very friendly and helpful. There is no doubt that we will be staying at this property again.
Sandpiper in general needs a better housekeeping service!
Steve E. from St. Louis, MO recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2008 Our condo was dirty when we arrived; we have little ones & my wife was not happy. We had to do a lot of additional cleaning (including vaccuming up popcorn (if they truly vacuumed prior to our arrival, would there be popcorn on the floor?!)plus my wife bought a mop because the one in the condo was nasty. in general it did not feel clean; our kids all had colds by the time we went home. This was our 5th time at the sandpiper & we've not experienced it being this diry in the past. We had 2 families join us for the first time & they were not happy with their condos at all (dirty, & theirs were not updated. At least 3B has new cabinets & nice tile). Our dishwasher also didn't work very well. We told the Bender rep about how dirty the room was, especially since we pay a housekeeping fee, but they didn't really comment. We felt like this should be waived since we had to spend a lot of time cleaning it when we arrived! Also, my mother in law got stuck in the elevator for 20 minutes or so which was not good; my wife doesnt like elevators & wouldnt ride it before; now I know she never will, which is tough when you go shopping or are taking suitcases upstairs. We like the Sandpiper but they really need to review their housekeeping service, and ought to make some improvements to the condos mandatory (update cabinets! get rid of very soiled carpets! do a deeper cleaning a little more frequently!).
A guest from Indianapolis, IN recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in June, 2008 Quite a few smokers were staying on the property during our stay. It was unpleasant much of the time when walking along the decks or sitting outside of our condo. The smoke was bad enough on a couple of occasions, that we went inside so we would not have to breath the smoke.The beach had quite a bit of debris in it.(small object other than shells)We always enjoy the condo complex itself. It is very pretty. We prefer the smaller exstablishments to the big high rises.
Property Manager Response:
Bender Realty and the owners do not police the outside decks and common areas re: smokers. It is generally accepted that smokers will step outside; however this is a no-smoking condo.
Dianne G. from Grandville, MI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in April, 2008 WE had a problem with our sink not draining and someone came very quickly. I did not expected that quick of service. It was great!
A guest from Louisville, KY recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2007 A great place to stay to get away at the beach yet still enjoy plenty to do. Beautiful beach, very family friendly.
Kay Dyess N. from Brandon, MS recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2007 Have been staying at the Sandpiper for over 20 years. And will continue to stay each summer. Have been with my whole family several times and have been by myself with just my children and feel comfortable and safe with every visit. My children have made friends from other states that they continue to be friends with today as young adults. And now as my youngest will soon graduate high school, I hope to experience Sandpiper at different seasons as well.... Thank you Bender Realty for being a part of these special memories!!!
Barbara B. from Menasha, WI recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2007 We love Gulf Shores and the Sandpiper. Have returned almost every year over the last 20 years - wished we had purchased a condo the 1st year we were there! Always have FANTASTIC weather. The local folks are always friendly and helpful. Condo could have been a bit cleaner. Pool heater out a couple days. Overall - can't wait until next year!
